A man who suffered with chronic hand pain chopped the limb off so people "would listen" to him.
Mark Goddard, 44, had constant pain following a motorbike accident and became frustrated with doctors who could not relieve his symptoms.
The former mechanic decided to amputate the hand with a home-made guillotine in his back garden, but his pains have not stopped.
Mr Goddard told BBC Radio 5 live's Chris Warburton: "I don't like pain but it was something that I was prepared to do to try and get some form of reaction or get something done."
